Characteristics: If you are ready for a cat-bro vibe kind of cat, then please consider Murray. He is an amazing, especially sweet, friendly, very affectionate, and confident cat in the prime of life. He is very curious yet calm, and smart. Anyone lucky enough to make Murray part of his or her family will be blessed with a loving and devoted companion. Murray is a very people friendly and social cat who loves to get pets and attention. To Murray, there is nothing better than following you from room to room. He is also quick to play, chase toy mice, snuggle, purr when you pet him, stretch, and sleep near his family. He always uses the litter box, every time. He always scratches the legs of the cat condos, and never scratches the furniture. He enjoys being on his owner’s chest or lap, or lying next to a human torso.
Appearance: Murray, a DSH, has very beautiful markings. He has a soft coat of gray fur, and he’s very good at grooming himself. He has a white neck and chest, white toes on his front paws and white socks on his back paws. And then, there are his eyes — his expressive, green eyes. They are gorgeous and shine with all the great warmth and love Murray has to give.
His story: In late December when Murray was caught as a stray by a rescue group, he was taken to a city of L.A. shelter where he was inspected for a microchip and screened for feline diseases. He was diagnosed with mange. He is recovered now and is SO ready to move on to the next chapter of his life, a home of his very own. He didn’t have a microchip, and so no owner could be reached. Murray is FIV+, but this is not a condition which is expected to impact his quality of life or require excessive medical care. The disease is extremely hard to transmit from cat to cat, requiring direct blood contact (typically from a deep puncture wound). It is not transmissible to humans.

Murray might have been euthanized, but luckily someone spoke up and said that Kitten Rescue would find him a forever home in spite of his diagnosis. Sure enough, Kitten Rescue rescued him from the shelter, and he was brought to the KR Sanctuary. He ignored most of the cats there but he didn’t get along with a couple of alpha male cats, so he was placed with a foster mom (me) in March.
Placement: It is time to give Murray a wonderful, forever home he so richly deserves. That home must not include another cat, dog, or kids. The ONLY scenario for Murray would be to be the only pet in the family, and the center of attention.
